16 March - Quilting Day
Quilts are an important piece of our heritage. They offer insight into the social, cultural, and economic history of an area. A quilt is defined as two layers of fabric, frequently with some form of batting or stuffing sandwiched between them, held together by ties or stitched designs.
Quilting can date back to 3400 BC. The term "quilt" comes from the Latin 'culcita', meaning a stuffed sack. As a noun, it means "a three-layered stitched bed covering," and as a verb, it means "to stitch through the layers as a way to hold them together."
Thread choice is important for any quilting project, because it holds everything together. It's best to start with a simple, strong thread, and wait on specialty threads like metallic or monofilament thread (made for invisible stitching), which are more difficult to work with.
